United by our faith in Jesus Christ as the only possible way of salvation, we enjoy working together, praying together, and worshiping together. We want to grow to become more like our Savior. We encourage each other in the faith. If you have not been a part of the church family, come and find out what our family is like.
Who are you? Who am I?
Our identity is important. It is what uniquely describes us. It is so important that there are a lot of identity theives out there trying to steal us away from ourselves.
I'm not just talking about those who would steal our Social Security Numbers, credit card numbers, and bank accounts. I am talking about those who would steal our humanity from us and our Christianity from us.
All humans are created in God's image. It doesn't matter what our ethnicity is. It doesn't matter what our gender is. It doesn't matter what our hair color, eye color, height, weight, clothing size, or economic standing is -- we are all created in God's image and as such, have worth.
All of those who have trusted in Jesus Christ as Savior are re-created into Christ's image. While that process is not complete, we are "accepted in the Beloved" (Ephesians 1:6). Because we are accepted in the Beloved, we have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in Him.
Satan doesn't want us to remember that. He wants us to treat humans as things. He wants us to forget that believers are already redeemed by Jesus Christ. He wants us to forget who we are.
So, read the book of Ephesians. It reminds believers of who we are in Christ.
